The CI has been a central Denver fixture for decades. But if you haven't been there recently, you haven't seen the remodel - back to its roots! The drinks are cheap and heavy, and their excellent daily specials are just the icing on the gravy.

    Be sure to try the nachos - the chip-to-stuff ratio guarantees each bite is loaded with the goods!

    Here's the deal...wings are rock solid but get them smoked! The Pancho Villa will cure any hangover but be patient. These guys work really hard and are totally understaffed. Tip well!

    This vile "server" girl Jenny is HORRIBLE! THE WORST WAITRESS I'VE EVER ENDURED. She puts the "wait" in waitress. I had to get up from my table and go to the Bar 4 times.

    While it's easy to dub this popular neighborhood spot, which has been around for decades, a sports bar, the College Inn attracts a lot of folks who are interested in more than just watching the game. Read more
